ABSTRACT
Early detection and prompt management of metabolic crisis are crucial to favourable outcomes in the infant with an inherent metabolic disease for which treatment is available. The nursing role includes monitoring, support and information giving as well as fluid and dietary management. As technology improves, more infants and children will be diagnosed and survive, requiring care from nurses in a wider range of settings.
